(So… I was way off base with my theory about the crash site being staged huh? Where is your God now allendeadmirer? ;) )
from Sky News
Rebels planned to sabotage the investigation into Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 by scattering parts of other planes at the crash site, according to Sky sources.
UK intelligence officials intercepted communications between pro-Russian separatists, seemingly discussing deliberate attempts to tamper with the scene of the disaster.
Evidence indicates rebels talked about removing victims’ remains from the fields of Grabovo, where the plane was shot down.
Sky sources in Whitehall added that the rebels also considered sending the black boxes to Moscow.
Sky’s Defence Correspondent Alistair Bunkall said the sources claimed the separatists wanted to confuse the situation further for investigators.
He said: “I think this will play into the fears that many people have that not all of the bodies will be returned, that parts of the plane have been tampered with in order to try and hide any evidence.
“It has been incredibly difficult for international monitors to gain access to the crash site.
“This is all a part of UK intelligence working with intelligence agencies around the world to try and build up a picture not only of what happened at the point of impact, but also what happened in the hours and days that followed on from that.“

I got this somehow on my Twitter feed. It’s from neocon duel citizen Likudnik John Bolton and it’s a Hasbara/Megaphone type link to a poll about whether or not Israel is FULLY justified in their ongoing slaughter of 1. children and 2. women and 3. men and 4. the elderly and 5. stray animals and 6. moral decency and 7. power plants in Gaza.
The message is pretty clear. See if you can pick up on it.
I wonder: is that IDF tank commander looking for an ambulance to blow up or a school? What do you think? He just MIGHT be looking for YOUR house if you vote the wrong way because yes, that is an Israeli tank pointed at YOU!
You had BETTER vote the RIGHT way (and by “right” I mean “Likudnik fascist right”) otherwise… who knows. I mean, it’s not like you can vote “No” anyway. No link for that.

The Creveld = The Kraken?
You almost expect the guy to break down and start screeching “Oh go fuck yourselves, goys! You’re all cattle before the Jews!”
CrossTalking with Nora Lester Murad, Flynt Leverett and Martin van Creveld didn’t work out so well for the Israeli PR machine the other day. Their paid apologist Creveld (an apt name) wanted to keep talking about “rockets from Gaza” while the other guests talked about things like Israel’s crippling sanctions against Gaza and the occupation of the West Bank and slaughtering Palestinian children.
“Rockets landed near my house!” “You aren’t under fire!” “My GRANDCHILD!” “THE ROOOOCKETS!” retorted the Creveld through his sobering slanted orifice before deciding to take his Ipad and run away back to his little dusty hate-filled cave.
You see, it really doesn’t take much to send these ghouls and their obfuscation and overt racism packing when humanity, common sense and reason are given equal billing and airtime. They don’t stand a chance and they know it so they take their Megaphone-linked toys and run away to find a more complicit outlet for the message of their vile masters.
So that didn’t go so well for the folks at the Hasbara offices. And then unfortunately for the Hasbara PR efforts, Israelis just laugh when those sirens go off because they know it’s all bullshit.
That can’t help the “its all because of the RooOooooooOooOoooOockets!” meme:
At tel aviv airport, security/airport staff yell at people to get to a shelter bc of rockets. Some people scream, others laugh & walk away—

Apparently the sirens are a rolling IQ test for the citizens of Israel. The dumb ones scream and drop ass-up on the ground. The smart ones laugh and step over the dumb ones and go on with their day. The longer it takes them to figure it out, the more time they spend in the pillow-biting position, the dumber they are.
Somewhere, somebody is watching those CCTV videos and making a record of such things.
The thin veil of credibility has worn through and the despotic oil hungry Likudniks can be seen pulling the strings. Yes, there is an endgame. Yes, it revolves around Marine-1 and Marine-2. Look them up. Yes, it revolves around the recently formed coalition government in Palestine and international recognition of Palestinian borders. Figuring that out is our IQ test.
Someone somewhere is making a record of that as well I’m sure.
Watch the video. Feel the hate. It’s on one side as you can see for yourselves. The Creveld has had enough around the 8 minute mark, but he lashes out while squirming throughout the entire video. Enjoy.
A new tool for Palestinian parents to keep their kids in line:
“you kids be good now. Do your homework, obey the Israeli masters and eat your gruel or the Creveld will get you”

Yesterday the Office of the Director of National Intelligence released some intel which purports to implicate Russia for having armed the “rebels” in eastern Ukraine with what appears to be a mobile rocket launching platform and ended up “perhaps” aiding in the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight MH17. This is apparently the basis for the White House’s accusations that Russia is behind the downing of the flight.
It is patently ridiculous.
UNRWA said on Tuesday it found missiles hidden in one of the schools the agency is operating in the Gaza Strip.
Today, in the course of the regular inspection of its premises, UNRWA discovered rockets hidden in a vacant school in the Gaza Strip. As soon as the rockets were discovered, UNRWA staff were withdrawn from the premises, and so we are unable to confirm the precise number of rockets. The school is situated between two other UNRWA schools that currently each accommodate 1,500 internally displaced persons.
UNRWA strongly and unequivocally condemns the group or groups responsible for this flagrant violation of the inviolability of its premises under international law.
The IDF had their own explanation for bombing schools: Hamas did it first.
Over 90 rockets were fired from Gaza yesterday, one of which hit an empty kindergarten in southern Israel.—

I guess the spinmiesters had to do something. All those dead kids are starting to add up and the complicit MSM just can’t help but exploit their blood for page views and paper sales… Plus, that little Flight MH17 distraction fell apart so…

Hillary Clinton said Russia had to have helped shoot down Flight MH17 because “the terrorists” didn’t have the technical know-how to use the systems Russia MUST have given them. They claimed that the BUK launching system had been squirled back over to Russian territory. Obama practically promised pictures of Putin with an AMCE rocket launcher set… aaaaaaand what happens?
The EU votes against the new sanctions and a real investigation is underway soooooooo….. “oops. sorry. misquoted”
from the AP
Senior U.S. intelligence officials say they have no evidence of direct Russian government involvement in the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17.
They say the passenger jet was likely felled by an SA-11 surface-to-air missile fired by Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine and that Russia “created the conditions” for the downing by arming the separatists.
The officials briefed reporters Tuesday under ground rules that their names not be used in discussing intelligence related to last week’s air disaster, which killed 298 people.
Down the memory hole:
“The United States has confirmed that Russia supplied sophisticated missile launchers to separatists in eastern Ukraine and that attempts were made to move them back across the Russian border after the Thursday shoot-down of a Malaysian jet liner, a U.S. official said Saturday.”

The official name for Israel’s latest assault on Gaza is “Operation Protective Edge.” A better name would be “Operation Déjà Vu.” As it has on several prior occasions, Israel is using weapons provided by U.S. taxpayers to bombard the captive and impoverished Palestinians in Gaza, where the death toll now exceeds 500. As usual, the U.S. government is siding with Israel, even though most American leaders understand Israel instigated the latest round of violence, is not acting with restraint, and that its actions make Washington look callous and hypocritical in the eyes of most of the world.
This Orwellian situation is eloquent testimony to the continued political clout of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) and the other hardline elements of the Israel lobby. There is no other plausible explanation for the supine behavior of the U.S. Congress–including some of its most “progressive” members–or the shallow hypocrisy of the Obama administration, especially those officials known for their purported commitment to human rights.
